So long Sri Lanka! After the horrible Easter attacks, many friends and family cautioned me against going on this part of my trip, but honestly cancelling wasn’t even an option in my mind. Look, there is evil in this world… but there is also good, and love, and kindness, and courage and respect… and I chose to give those things power… and boy am I glad I did! Sri Lanka you have been amazing to me! I got to reunite with old friends (love you @camyofthelyn), sing worship with new friends, face my fear of heights (yet again), bathe elephants, ride in tuk tuks (which feel more like racing Mario Carts), eat new foods (still can’t handle spicy foods for the life of me), and experience new cultures. Thank you Sri Lanka for welcoming me with open arms! Now I’m off to Japan to finally reunite with three of my favorite people in the whole world!! #srilanka #srilankastrong #prayforsrilanka #travel #travelingrealtor #realtor

Although Yala National Park is arguably Sri Lanka’s most famous National Park (Tier II), both nationally and internationally, very few people appear to understand that this is due to Yala Block I, which catapulted the Park to global recognition as “the best location in Asia to observe and photograph Leopards in the Wild”. What is now Block I was originally a Game or “Hunting” Reserve (dated as of 1900) for wealthy, interested elements of pre – independence Sri Lankan society. Subsequently, as a result of Ceylon Government Gazette No. A1979/14 (dated as the 25th of February 1938), Block I both received its current name (originally as Yala) and attained its current extent (141 square kilometres), laying the foundation for the formulation of the 979 square kilometre, five block National Park (Tier II) that the majority of us know and cherish, known as “Yala”. It is dominated by Semi – Arid Scrubland/Xeric Shrubland, interspersed with numerous Reservoirs, Watering Holes and Localised Savannah Grasslands. Together with the Yala Strict Nature Reserve (Tier Ia), the Wattegama Kabilitta National Reserved Forest (Tier Ib), 19 other Protected Areas (PAs) and the rest of the Park, Block I collectively constitutes the Yala Sector of the Greater Yala Complex. #yalanationalpark #yalablockone #semiaridscrubland #tallgrasscoveredopenplains #reservoirsandwateringholes #leopardparadise #axisdeerparadise #keystonespecies #srilankanwildlife #srilankanphotographer #visitsrilanka #srilankadaily #wonderlustsrilanka #srilankatourism #TheGreaterYalaComplex #CollectiveProtectedAreas

🌺THE BEST BOTANICAL GARDENS I'VE BEEN TO 🌺 . . We spent the last 2 weeks in Kandy, volunteering in a hostel. In between the painting we had plenty of time to explore the beautiful and green Kandy🌿. One of the things we did was visiting the Royal botanical gardens. It was a little pricy but we spent all day exploring the magical creations of mother nature🌏. These also included geckos, a snake and thousand's of flying foxes (they look like giant bats and in the day time they hang in threes: upside down)🙈 . . This weekend I spent sometime with myself and I enjoyed the shit out of it😀 on to our next destination! . . What did you guys do this weekend?🤗 . . #botanicalgardens #kandy #green #nature #mothernature #flowers #magic #planetearth #travelwithme #travelstroke #travelvibes #cometravelwithme #metime #travelpassion #passionpassport #globe_captures #travelpic #srilanka #asia #beautifuldestinations #wonderworld #wanderworld

2019 ➡️ 2014 . A little back story of why these photos are so special to me. 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣4️⃣: I was an Architecture intern traveling around Sri Lanka for the first time. Tourism had just picked up and most areas were hardly even explored. This was my first trip to the mountains of the island, and Abishek and I figured our way through a 2km stretch of the river to get to the edge of the waterfall. It was mesmerising to just be there – 2 tiny explorers in this beautiful paradise of an island, with not a soul in sight. It still is one of my best experiences in the country. . 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣: Last week we jumped over the same rocks, waded through the same river and reached the exact same spot. 5 years later, I’m at the brink of starting my own travel company @beyondtravelco to share my love for this island with more people, to show them beyond what they are always shown. After the Easter crisis, I had to cancel all bookings for my first clients and I almost lost hope. But this trip last week showed me that even though some things are different, nothing has really changed! More places and experiences have opened up over the years, people are way more open, the smiles are warmer, but Sri Lanka is still the same! These photos are a proof of exactly that!
